Photo Flash: Inside Opening Night of THE TWENTIETH-CENTURY WAY Off-Broadway

By: Jun. 04, 2015

The Twentieth-Century Way, Tom Jacobson's acclaimed two-person play about homosexual entrapment in Los Angeles at the turn of the 20th century, premiereed Off-Broadway last night, June 3 at 8:00 p.m. Check out a look back below!

Directed by The Theatre @ Boston Court's Michael Michetti, and starring Will Bradley and Robert Mammana, the play began previews on May 28, 2015 at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater (224 Waverly Place, NYC). The limited engagement will run through July 19, 2015.

Based on a little-known incident in LA history, this theatrical thrill ride explores the collision of reality and fantasy as two actors juggle various roles to entrap homosexuals for "social vagrancy" in the public restrooms of 1914 Long Beach. But are they actually entrapping each other? Who they are and what they need is a mystery that deepens with every twist and turn.

The Twentieth-Century Way earned Mr. Jacobson a PEN Center USA Award for Drama, and was a sensation at the 2010 NY International Fringe Festival, winning Overall Excellence in Production of a Play.

This co-production continues the association between two companies -- The Theatre @ Boston Court (Los Angeles) and Rattlestick Playwrights Theater (New York).

The new performance schedule is as follows: Monday, Wednesday-Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm. Tickets for The Twentieth-Century Way range from $10 - $50 and can be purchased by visiting
